Gnocchi Piccata

Do you believe in magic? Because we think we’ve found it. There’s magic in your WECO bags tonight, everyone, and it’s in the form of a garlic parmesan cream sauce and Theo’s famous garlic bread. Plus, garlic = no vampires. That’s good too. Oh, and the gnocchi are soft little pillows of plump potato-ey perfection, so when you combine with the sauce, you kinda-sorta-might-just shed a tear for how beautiful it is 🙂

What’s in your bag:

  • Potato gnocchi 
  • Parmesan cream sauce + peas
  • Chef Theo’s garlic bread
  • Zucchini, tomato + arugula salad
  • Lemon tarragon dressing 

What you’ll need from home:

  • Large pot
  • Large pan
  • Butter
  • Strainer
  • Salt + pepper
  • Fresh cracked black pepper

Total prep time: 12 minutes


The Gnocchi Piccata

  1. Get a big pot of hot water on the stove, and season well with salt (salty water is good water). Bring it to a boil.
  2. While the water heats, grab a big pan and add a pat of butter. Put it over medium heat til the butter bubbles.
  3. Slowly spoon the cream sauce into the pan. Let it warm. 
  4. Back to the boiling water! Drop in the gnocchi and give them a stir to separate. Cook for two minutes – test them for doneness – but should be no more!
  5. Reserve a cup of pasta water and strain the gnocchi.
  6. Toss the gnocchi into the pan with the cream sauce. Add a couple splashes of the reserved pasta water—it helps bind the sauce perfectly to the pasta 🙂
  7. Cook it just a bit until the sauce clings to the gnocchi. 
  8. Season with salt and fresh cracked black pepper as needed. 

The Salad

  1. Add the veggies into a large bowl.
  2. Drizzle with lemon-tarragon dressing and season to taste with a pinch of salt and pepper.
  3. Toss, toss, toss!

The Garlic Bread

  1. Toast it up in the oven or toaster oven.

Scoop the gnocchi piccata into an even layer in a shallow bowl. Put the salad in a side dish, grab your sauce scoop (AKA garlic bread), and you’re in business! Bada-bing, bada-boom! 


That’s it! Dinner solved, dinner served. #weareWECO
